All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

  • Strong performances anchor this low-key romantic drama about two people with Asperger syndrome.

    Feb 22, 2006
  • From the first, there is a refreshing absence of special pleading or under-the-microscope examination in Naess' approach.

    Feb 7, 2006

  • Shapeless and redundant, this flick is exactly the sort of movie you'd envision if I said "mildly retarded yet physically gorgeous young romance."

Audience Reviews for Mozart and the Whale

Overall pretty good but I dozed off somewhere in the middle.

Crazy and odd, but isn't all love that way. I thought this was beautiful and well done.

An uneven, honourably intended romantic comedy.

Initially I only rented this because Josh Hartnett was in it, but it really was all-around very good. I don't know how accurate a portrayal of Asperger's it was, but never mind. The two main characters might have been tragic by themselves, but them coming together defined the movie and gave it lift. I liked the message most of all: it's okay to be crazy, but it's better to be crazy together. Reminded me of the Mad Pride movement. I liked this a lot more than I thought I would.
